By Elisabetta Cali, FFWPU Italy
In the beautiful location of Colle Mattia on the 2nd of June, the 2nd gen organized a festival on the theme: FLAVORS AND CULTURE
FROM THE WORLD, with the purpose to larger the group of guests and friends and to invite them to the next Family Festival with Blessing we will have in Colle Mattia. All sisters and some guests too cooperated cooking and preparing their traditional dishes. A musical group friend of 2nd gen came to offer their music. In the afternoon Japanese sisters entertained guests teaching Japanese writing, origami and let the people dress some beautiful Kimono they brought.
28 guests and 31 members attended the festival, many families, youths with their parents, enjoyed the natural and familiar atmosphere. Like a big family with many different cultures, we learned from other traditions and food, but more than that we shared our heart and love for God our Parent. All the guests are very interesting to come back for the Family Festival next 17 June, and some would like to know more about Divine Principle and True Parents. This time every family had guests and not only 1gen, but 2nd gen too invited their friends.
